Description

This is an awesome example of the made in Japan lusterware from the first half of the 20th century. Its shape is somewhat like an elongated egg on a stand or rocket ship or, if laid on its side, that of a dirigible or blimp. Made of a thin fine porcelain and hand painted with crimson, pink, and blue flowers, green leaves, and gold accents. It is then glazed in the typical and gorgeous Japanese lusterware glaze. It is marked on the bottom; however, it is too blurry to make out the name. We can see a depiction of a pagoda and the words hand painted and made in Japan but cannot make out the other writing. No matter. It is beautiful and wonderful and should be yours.
